From the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, the stars aligned perfectly for a tremendous 50th episode. Legendary podcast alumnus John Davison and Mark MacDonald return to the show along with Shacknews editor Xav de Matos and Q-Games producer Ariel Angelotti. Iwata's keynote provides the starting point for the conversation, which then quickly turns to the long lineup of games seen at and around the show. Some of the big titles include Batman: Arkham City, Battlefield 3, SOCOM 4, Brink, Guild Wars 2, PixelJunk Shooter 2, and many more. It's definitely a "must-have" show.

Knights Errant serve up their track "Hiyah" in this week's Featured Music spot. The band consists of Ben Jendras, Conor Ryan, and Jerry Willoughby from Chicago. They have been playing together since the early years of traumatizing adolescence, and like their name sake, struck out to create some noise of their own, disregarding the constraints of genre/style, not caring as long as it rocked. Catch up with them on Facebook and MySpace.
Original music in the show by Del Rio. Get his latest single, Small Town Hero on iTunes. Check out more, including the Super Mega Worm mix and other mash-ups on his ReverbNation page or Facebook page.
